I have a KME Sharpener and I'm looking at getting the Shapton Glass stones from Mark as he can cut them because he get's them with no Glass backing on them,I was also looking at the Pro's don't want both.

I'm looking at going to as high as 15000 in the Pro's and 16000 in the glass,witch do you think will give a better and more refined edge the glass or the Pro.

Also what is the wear rate like on these stones do they wear really long or is one a bit better over the other.

WADE <> Consensus dictates the Glass series is most suited towards jig systems. Their lack of feedback is moot on a jig, and their exceptionally hard makeup - like I said - work well on the jigs.

To the contrary, the Pros are BY FAR my freehand preference.
